  2. Your wizcase article says: "Samsung TVs run on Tizen OS". Tizen is not Windows, so EAM will not run on it. I can't think of any reason why a VPN would damage the TV, and that website suggests it's perfectly possible to do it. It's probbaly not legal/ethical though, if you're planning to circumvent georestrictions or licences. Using a VPN to stream video on a TV presumably won't put you at risk of, for example, losing financial information. But when people use VPNs (on eg a laptop, which can also run more general-purpose software) and then use them to connect to anything that involves payment systems (especially a bank), I wonder how one finds a VPN service one is sure is trustworthy. After all, they work by you sending your internet traffic to them and then they send it on to somewhere else. That sounds to me pretty similar to a man-in-the-middle attack... if one doesn't trust the service in the middle.
  3. I can't tell precisely, I've just bought this model: SAMSUNG 43" Class 4K (2160P) Ultra HD Smart LED HDR TV UN43NU6900. I've just read a very usevul article how to use VPNs with SmartTVs - https://www.wizcase.com/blog/how-to-use-a-vpn-on-smart-tv/ but I can't find anything determining are they safe for a device. Maybe I misread something, so I decided to ask for advice.
  4. My files are infected with this virus. can someone help?
  5. Hello @eikichibonizuka This is the result of the STOP Ransomware attack. I have been tracking the malicious work of this program since December 2017. Now on the forum a lot of victims from different variants of this Ransomware. In some cases, the files can be decrypted. @Demonslay335 (the developer of the STOPDecrypter) collects information from the victims, writes data and tries to update the STOP Decrypter. After that, victims can try to decrypt the files. A positive result and a lucky chance are not always possible. Download STOP Decrypter again >>> First you need to try to decrypt a small group of files, but first you need to make copies of these files. If STOPDecrypter won't be able to recover your files yet, it can still be used to get information that may be able to help the creator of STOPDecrypter figure out your decryption key. Here's a link to instructions on how to get this information with STOPDecrypter: https://kb.gt500.org/stopdecrypter
  6. thank you for the reply stapp. I have already uploaded the required files. hoping for your next reply.
  7. I expect that's not possible, because EAM requires Windows to be running, and what's more it might need to be Windows on amd/intel cpus. What cpu and OS does the TV run?
  8. Dear Meri, Thank you for your reply with the requested information. I'll need to discuss the situation with my colleagues from our mobile development department now, and I'll come back to you as soon as I know more. I'm not sure if I can reply to you again before begin next week as our developers usually don't work on weekends. Thank you for your understanding, and please let me know if I can be of any help in the meanwhile.
  9. Thank You very much. I will wait.
  10. I'm a real fan of Hulu shows but living in Ukraine I doesn't see much of them because of georestrictions. But there's a will - there is a way, I've found how to install VPN on my Samsung SmartTV, it's not very difficult procedure. But I always think about safety and security - and I would like to install your anti-malware software altogether with VPN service. Can this become reality? And what VPN works better with Emsisoft products?
  11. I recommend uploading a copy of the ransom note along with an encrypted file to ID Ransomware so that you can verify which ransomware you are dealing with: https://id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com/ Paste a link to the results into a reply so one of our experts can review them.
  12. So I shouldn't worry about and keep using Brave Browser?
  13. The results of your proposed methods are as follows: 1. id-ransomware 2. STOPDecrypter v2.1.0.18 STOPDecrypter-log (1).txt
  14. I got infected by .skymap ranswomware. please help!
  15. Demonslay335 please help .kiratos destroy my life destroyed Starting decryption...

  16. thanks for your attention. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  17. That is more than likely a variant of the STOP/Djvu ransomware. You may verify that using ID Ransomware if you'd like to: https://id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com/ While STOPDecrypter probably won't be able to recover your files yet, it can still be used to get information that may be able to help the creator of STOPDecrypter figure out your decryption key. Here's a link to instructions on how to get this information with STOPDecrypter: https://kb.gt500.org/stopdecrypter Important: STOP/Djvu now installs the Azorult trojan as well, which allows it to steal passwords. It is imperative that you change all passwords (for your computer and for online services you use) once your computer is clean. While most ransomwares will automatically delete themselves after they finish encrypting files, some are now leaving behind components on computers they infect that will encrypt any new files saved and will encrypt any files you manage to decrypt. It's best to check and make sure that no such components have been left behind, so I recommend following the instructions at the link below to get us logs from FRST so that one of our experts can make sure there is nothing malicious still on your computer (please attach the log files FRST saves to a reply to this topic on the forums): https://help.emsisoft.com/en/1738/how-do-i-run-a-scan-with-frst/ Note: If anything that appears suspicious is found in your logs, then your post will be moved into a new topic to facilitate better communication between you and whoever is assisting you. We'll also try to make sure that you are following the new topic so that you receive e-mail notifications when someone replies to it.

  19. Obviously we can't condone or endorse piracy, however if someone wants to take risks with their computer then they should be running risky software in a sandbox or a virtual machine. Tell him to add exclusions for the games, as well as for Steam/Origin/Uplay/etc. That should help with performance issues. In Emsisoft Anti-Mawlare for instance, you can exclude the entire Steam folder like in the screenshot below, and that covers any games in the SteamApps folder as well:

  21. I've forwarded your ID and MAC addresses to the creator of STOPDecrypter so that he can archive them in case he is able to figure out your decryption key at some point in the future. All you have to do now is give us some time, and we'll do what we can for you.

  24. Hey there, I can now see the cause. Thank you very much for informing and really sorry for the late reply [I didn't checked the notify button on the other case too, so, really sorry for that]. On the other hand, the owner of the PC re-installed the Windows and shifted to Win 10 now as this PC isn't mine and the other case is that, it was running Win 7 that officially stopped receiving any further loop hole fixes and security patch updates. The PC didn't had any Anti-Virus to begin with [except of Windows Defender that was also not updated] and I installed the Anti-viruses on this PC after checking up that there was a Ransom Virus. After my further research, I was also able to find out that the problematic Ransom-ware virus was known as (Jamper) that hadn't gain any official free Decryption yet. [It was about 1 hour after I posted my query here and found about this virus on a site called "https://id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com"]. (Note: The owner of the PC test things up using Pirate Software's and also, you can find many other pirated softwares on the logs too, if my hunch is correct and mostly would be based on games). ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Though, I made this query because of this virus, my data also got locked up and I was in the middle of Game Developing and animation process that made a problem hence he re-installed the windows and I simply use this PC for Animation and Game Development purpose and also, he doesn't install any anti-virus because it lags up his games sometimes [i.e not much of a problem tbh]. Yet, is there still a chance of removing the error because I'm also planning to make decrypters too and also wanted to collect some information that if this virus can still be removed even after a new OS is installed because other drives aren't affected by the installation process except of the OS drive and most likely if I'm correct then the keys/certificates are also made on the OS drive. Thank you so much for answering my query and I'm really grateful to both of you . Patiently waiting for your reply and really thank you so much for answering my query once again.
  25. Yesterday
  26. It's a Behavioral alert on the part of or Behavior Blocker. Behavior Blocker detected suspicious behavior "CryptoMalware" of C:\Users\*******\AppData\Local\Temp\CR_4D200.tmp\setup.exe (SHA1: 2464A40A0FEFD6F569B015F68E57E99DAB147C58) I've reported it to our lab. They should fix it shortly.
  27. It's the installer that got the EAM warning though, not the Brave browser itself. Unless the installer also uses TOR to grab the full program? You will need to wait for Emsisoft to comment.
